Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein addressed the UN Monday, calling for parliament-to-parliament dialogue between Israel and other Middle Eastern countries.
“Come to Jerusalem. Come to the Knesset. Meet with me. Sit with me. Talk with me,” in a speech The Jerusalem Post obtained in advance on Sunday. “Let’s talk water. Let’s talk clean air. Let’s talk prosperity. Let’s talk partnerships. And peace? And borders? These talks, I assure you, will follow.”
Edelstein spoke at the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s World Conference of Speakers of Parliament, which was hosted by the UN, and focused mostly on the environment.
